About Us

Reimagining technical staffing for the construction, engineering, energy, emergency management, and environmental industries.

Who We Are

Certis Solutions leverages 70+ years of industry experience from our founding partners. We specialize in workforce solutions for large employers and AEC firms. Our unique insight into talent acquisition challenges led us to create Certis Solutions, addressing deficiencies in managing “time on job” constraints. We optimize workforce scalability, preventing stunted growth, budget overruns, and project delays. With our solutions, AEC firms can retain exceptional talent, minimize costs, and protect their reputation. Certis eliminates financial and reputational risks associated with undesirable assignments, “business necessity” placements, and corporate layoffs.
